    Choose Your Supply

    Thanks to deregulation, you can choose your own energy and natural gas supplier (like CenStar).

    Get the electric and gas services you want. You’ll continue to receive one bill from your utility. Your energy supplier will be an extra line on that bill.

    No Service Interruption

    Your utility will continue to deliver your natural gas and electricity. There is no interruption of service, ever!

    Same Service

    In the event of an emergency, your utility will continue to respond to all service calls.

    And What it means for you

    What is Energy Deregulation?

    Before 1998, one utility provided all parts of your energy service: generation, transmission, and distribution. With deregulation, generation is separated from transmission and distribution. Consumers can choose their energy supplier, while the delivery of the energy is still the responsibility of the local utility company.

    Electricity deregulation is available in 17 states across the United States.

    What Does Energy Deregulation Mean for Me?

    With deregulation you can:

    • Save money on your monthly energy bills. Unlike your utility, we can buy energy in bulk and pass the savings along to you.
    • Opt for green energy. Decrease your carbon footprint while maintaining affordability and reliability.
    • Avoid service interuptions. Deregulation only affects the supply of energy, not its distribution or delivery channels.
    • Enjoy quality customer service. Energy companies compete to offer the best customer service.

    With energy deregulation, you are in control of your power!

    Ask Us Anything

    We know you have questions and we want to answer them, look below for our most frequently asked questions. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Contact us here.

    Will I have an interruption in service when I switch?

    No! Since your power will still flow through the utility, there will be no interruption in service.

    Do I have to call my utility company or current electricity provider to switch?

    No! We will notify your utility, and if needed, they will notify your current electricity provider.

    Do I have to pay two separate bills?

    No! Bills will still come from the utility, and CenStar energy will be a line item on the bill. The utility will continue to read and service your meter.

    How long does the switch take?

    For electric customers: on your next meter-reading date, if you are enrolled at least 15 days before that date.
    For gas customers: on the 1st calendar day of the following month, if you are enrolled by the 15th of the previous month.
    During enrollment, we take care of everything! You’ll just need to keep an eye out for a letter from your utility with the final setup date.

    What happens if my power goes out?

    If your power goes out, you will need to call your utility. The utility reads your meter, handles service calls, and provides emergency assistance – you will continue to receive the same safe and reliable service from your utility.
